Facial sculpting is the reshaping of the face With ageing, changes to the shape and contour of the face occur and the tone, texture and quality of the skin reduce. At Sculpted, we start to tackle the early signs of ageing with non-invasive treatments and skin care products. When heavy ageing with skin wrinkling, sagging and volume depletion in areas of the face occur non-surgical modalities may no longer suffice and it may be time to consider surgical options. Often the best results here are achieved by combining surgical procedures with non-surgical treatments such as laser resurfacing, injectables (Anti-wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers) and skin care products to improve skin quality texture and remove signs of ageing sun damage. The procedures offered below may be utilised alone or combined as necessary for your desired result. How does face sculpting work? Face sculpting is like renovating a house. If the structure is in reasonable condition, one can rejuvenate it with minor external non-surgical treatments. But, if the structure has given way it may need more involved surgical work for the desired result. At your first consultation, Dr Sawhney will assess your facial features from hairline to the base of your neck. He will systematically explain any irregularities or problems present at each level and how we can help. He will ascertain your immediate and long-term goals before forming a short and long-term plan for you. This may mean non-surgical management with injectables at the outset or even minor procedures. If you are looking for more now, or potentially in the future, Dr Sawhney will produce a maintenance plan for you to optimise your facial features at each stage. On the other hand, should you require significant procedures at the outset – these can be organised. Once structural work is done with surgical procedures, the house may be ready, but the exterior may still need painting. This is where non-surgical treatments such as laser resurfacing and skin care products may improve the texture and quality of the skin to finish the job. Often maintenance with non-surgical treatments after a facelift for instance will help to keep the good result for longer as you continue to fight the ageing process. How does Dr Sawhney decide what procedures I need? Vectra 3D aesthetic simulation allows us to show simulations of potential changes that can be achieved with various surgical and non-surgical procedures. This innovative technology is primarily used for breast sculpting. However, it is also very useful in non-surgical rejuvenation of the face with fillers. It can even give estimates of volumes of filler required in each area to achieve the simulated results. The rhinoplasty (nose job) tool is extremely useful and allows far better visual communication between surgeon and patient. Patients need to remain mindful that these are simulations and the results may differ somewhat. It does however provide a significant visual aid that can help you and your clinician decide on what procedure, non-surgical or surgical is best for you and how far to go with a particular treatment.
